It just gets better every year, and with Barbie Killion from the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce, Chief Gary Dent (CPD) and Jamey Byrnes from Gary and Leo’s IGA how could it not?
We’re talking about the National Night Out (NNO) here, and the place to be on Aug. 5 is the Conrad Lions Swimming Pool Park from 5-9 p.m.

Out west of Conrad, on the rolling hills of Greg and Della Kellogg’s family farm, are several lines and clusters of trees that breakup the countryside beautifully. The trees, which were planted in two separate efforts, at two different times, were prompted by conservation programs, but the idea wasn’t a hard one for Greg to get on board with. The love of trees, he said, was something he got from his mother.
Chief Gary Dent reported on Tuesday, at the city council meeting, the CPD took in 188 calls for the month of June.
Six thefts were reported and officers solved five cases. There were eight cases of vandalism with seven of them being solved.
There were 13 calls concerning suspicious activity, various public assists, and 12 rides home from the taverns, six domestic situations, and six firework complaints.
